The Man behind the M - Marcelino

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Marcelino spent his formative years in Brazil. At the age of 24, a one-way plane ticket took him back to New York City. His realization of a dream come true in Marcelino Custom Finishes, Inc. began in 1996. While working at a Wall Street securities lending firm, Marcelino used his vacation time to attend a decorative painting class at the world renowned The Finishing School located just outside Manhattan. For over three decades, The Finishing School is the status leader in the decorative finishing industry.

After completing his training in faux and decorative finishes and taking several fine art courses at The Fashion Institute of Technology of New York, Marcelino was inspired to make some life changes and pursue his dream of becoming a freelance self-employed artist. Since that time, Marcelino has completed hundreds of projects spanning the world -- Rio de Janeiro, New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Newport Beach and San Diego. His outstanding work has been featured in prestigious local and national books and publications.  Marcelino continues his dedication to expanding and evolving the quality of services his team at MCF provides to clients. Most recently he completed an intensive Interior Design program at San Diego Mesa College..

Since 1996, Marcelino has grown his company from project-by-project to the full service contract artistic and traditional painting firm he directs today -- employing a team of talented painters and artists.

Marcelino resides in San Diego with his daughters.
